  • Wonderful safe place for all demographics. Beautiful boutique shops for men and women. Large variety of restaurants. Clean. Romantic venue. Fam friendly. Great surf culture. Everybody who lives and works here is happy! Watch the surf though if you choose to swim alternative beaches to Noosa Heads main Beach. Strong currents. No life saving staff at some places. Thankful to forefathers who fought and won the battle to preserve this coastal region. The progress that has been done is tasteful and benefits all who visit here. Stunning location.
  • The beauty of this beach will leave you speechless 😊. Very popular with locals and visitors alike, always full of lively activities. There are lifeguards around and first aid areas making you feel safe when you venture into the water. Soft silky sand under your feet, blue turquoise warm water, beautiful surrounds, what is there not to like.
